MINISERIES PREMIERE: Stephen King’s novel about time travel and the John F. Kennedy assassination is turned into an eight-part miniseries by Hulu, with episodes streaming weekly each Monday – beginning today, on Presidents Day. J.J. Abrams is an executive producer, and James Franco stars as Maine high school teacher Jake Epping, who is introduced to a secret, mysterious method of time travel. It’s a portal through the closet of a local diner, and, once he accepts the mission to investigate Lee Harvey Oswald and prevent the JFK assassination, he absorbs the basic rules about butterfly effects and such, and dives in. But he arrives in 1960, and has to spend the time there while gathering info and waiting for his opportunity. The time-travel rules and methods make little sense, but when do they? Jump in, as Jake does, and you’ll enjoy the ride – and the cars, and the pie, and the patented King twists and turns. For a full review, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
